Pedal to the Peak

About Pedal to the Peak

Pedal to the Peak was a major challenge undertaken by the parents and staff of Herbertstown NS. A group of 7 parents and 1 teacher aimed to travel from the lowest point in Ireland to the highest point in under 24 hours. This involved a cycle from the lowest point, the North Slob in Wexford, to Carrauntoohil in County Kerry. Following this 270KM journey the group then aimed to hike to the top of Ireland. No one had ever attempted or completed this challenge before! The group completed the challenge in 16 hours and 40 minutes! On the same day, a group of 40+ parents and staff also hiked to the top of Carrauntoohil.

The Pedal to the Peak committee are delighted to announce the fantastic results of our June fundraiser.
